Tonight

As I sit on the porch steps, I look up and see the bright stars shining down and a cool breeze brushes my cheek. There are tiny pops of green created by the lighting bugs dancing across my landscape. Lightening is lighting up the sky to the south, yet I am not afraid of the pending storm. I am content. At this moment in time, life is good.

School Daze…

As summer comes to an end, many are relieved to know fall is coming soon. Schools have already opened their doors to let our future in. My youngest son has now started his senior year. My oldest will be starting a community college soon as well.  I can’t believe in just a few months all my children will have completed high school.

knock on wood

In just a week, I am turning in my working girl card for a backpack, books and a school ID. Yes, I am going back to school. I will be a college girl.

However I do have my fears, will I be the oldest one there?  Will most of the students be young enough to be my children? What do I wear? I know me in a school girl skirt, a button up shirt with a sweater tied around my waist will not be age appropriate.

I’m not sure if I was signed up for weightlifting, but apparently that is a prerequisite to attend college . I didn’t read the fine print. There is a two man lift policy on all the books that you will need. I will be a pretty buff babe by the time I graduate.

One of my first classes is Anatomy, it has two parts to it, lecture and lab. I am curious about the lab portion of it. Do we get to pick our own partner? Please let it be a handsome young man, oh please oh please. My worst fear would be a dead one that we have to dissect, I couldn’t even handle doing that to an earthworm in Sophomore Biology.

This will all be an adventure, I can just feel it. Hopefully it will not be one that causes Night Terrors.

Stay tuned for more adventures of  Sadie Mae

Internet, oh Internet, where art thou Internet

I just don’t know what I have done to upset you so, to leave without saying a word.

So our relationship is a bit unhealthy, we all have our quirks. I can’t help but stalk you while you are away, following you to coffeehouse and cafes, but you are so funny and irresistible. I could sit and talk with you for hours.

No, I don’t have a problem. There is no need for an intervention. I don’t need clean dishes, we have paper plates. The laundry in my hamper is just barely dirty, I can get by for while longer. There is really no need to pick things up strewn about, I just step over them and call it exercise. Its called Step Aerobics!

What? You aren’t coming back??

Fine, I see you are trying to play tough love here. You hear that? Its the sound of the dishwasher. Yup, you can’t bully me. Al right, al right, ALRIGHT! The washing machine is running now. Anything else you want while I’m up? YOU WANT MORE?

I just can’t take anymore of your demands, I am running away with your baby brother, Mobile Network.

Waiting for your apology,

Sadie Mae

Bummer….

Don’t get me wrong, I love living out in the country. My dogs have the freedom to run until the cows come home. Since, I don’t have cows, that is a very long long time.

That being said, I want to know why that when I find out that I need something that it is ALWAYS after the store closes.

6 PM The store in town closes

6:05 Son notifies you that we are now out of milk.

Next closest store is 10 miles away.I normally make them go with out for the night, but sometimes I have to make the milk run, because my oldest will have a melt down if he doesn’t have the right kind of milk.

~~~~~~~

My oldest son calls “Mom, Ace needs medicine”

I look at my watch, it’s 7PM on a Sunday. Now, not even the town next door has dog medicine. So off I go to the big city that is a 30 minute drive away. Okay, I was secretly craving chocolate ice cream, so I went. To Wallyworld I go, to get dewormer. Stop by Dairy Queen to get ice cream, they are out of chocolate. “Are you friggin serious??” So reluctantly I order vanilla. Big mistake, it was almost as if they went to the bakery and go the whipped frosting to fill my ice cream cone. GAG!

If only I lived in the big city, then I would have only had to drive 5 minutes to the store and been able to get good ice cream, like at Cold Stone Creamery.

I am going to go get my right hand removed on Thursday, I think good ice cream is in order. YAY

It’s been awhile

NO! I didn’t forget about you all! I’ve just been busy with life in general. I mean come on when you are unemployed, how can I possibly spare any time to blog. HAHA!

I went to Alaska to visit my sister and help out with her 5 kids. That was quite the eye opener. I have 2 teenage boys, they pretty much keep to themselves. They alway have. I was thrust in the middle of 4 girls and a very active toddler boy. The wanted my attention 24-7 and the drama, OMG the drama. I don’t do well with drama at all. On an up note, I did get to see the beautiful scenery, and sit in the hot tub viewing the scenery. How cool is that??

While I was up there, a good friend of mine called. We talked, and I was inspired. I am going back to school. Physical Therapy is my calling. A job, where you can cause pain upon people has to be the best ever!! Especially when you get mad at them, you can push them just beyond their pain threashold, I am so amped!

I’m going to be a college girl. Can you imagine? College boys beware!! School starts in Aug, I have not even got register for classes yet, or even gotten my books. I am nervous yet excited.

See you soon. I promise.

Springtime…

Spring is one of my favorite season, there is nothing like the smell of spring. All the bulbs coming up, the fresh green grass and new calves running and jumping without a care in the world. Take that Jack Frost! Go to bed! However, Mother Nature does have her cruel pranks she likes to pull, like the awakening of the ticks.

Yep these nasty critters hide in the grass. I do take some precaution for the dogs by making them wear full body condoms putting Frontline on their necks. It’s like a magic force field. Ticks won’t bite them. No really it works awesome. However, the tick will take a ride on the dogs. In fact I’m pretty sure there is several tiny bus stops that the dog go and pick them up. Ding ding, next stop the house.  Oh yeah, they come in and next thing you know I have ticks on me. Really. There is something really wrong when you find a tick down there and you know you have not been rolling around the the grass having fun. Now we have a tick check station coming in the house, something simular to a search at prision, minus the full body cavity thing, cuz that would just be gross. However bathtime is pretty good at rinsing these little suckers off too.

Another thing about the lovely spring weather is the rain. Oh lovely rain. Doesn’t matter to me, I’ll just stay inside. However the dogs, manage to find every mud hole within a mile radius. Oh hell, they even find them in drought season too. Most of the time I can get away with an undercarriage wash, you know feet and belly. Not tonight.  Evidently they knew I was practicing my best slothing skills, at 8 PM I was still in my pajamas from the night before. It was awesome! So here I am washing 3 dogs, at 8 PM, in my pajamas. Stupid dogs. It wasn’t like I had chihuahuas or another I have a total of 200 lbs of dogs here, not a small task. They are not happy about this at all. I managed to get them in the bath. Shit, out of dog shampoo. Think….what about mine? I mean, it’s not going to be a regular occurance. Read the label, hmmm….doesn’t say it wasn’t tested on animals, so I guess it was, so as long as I don’t get it in their eyes, they will be okay. I’ll let you know if they go bald or anything. Bath is done. Phew! Drying them off. Mandy seems to think that while I am occupied, she will do me a favor. Like giving me a bath. I can almost hear what she was thinking. “Oh, you are a dirty girl, you need a bath. Hold still. Quit fighting it Bitch”. Ace on the other hand was clearly overworked and need a long drink when he was finished. Headed straight of the great porcilian water fountain.

When I’m finally through, I go to my favorite slothing spot, my bed. Someone clearly had been pissed. They layed right in my spot.

Their thoughts?

“HAHA! You have to sleep in the wet spot, Bitch”

Ogres and elephants…

As many of you know my parents are in the process of building a new house. I have basically have been their right hand woman, since I am unemployed so great at it. We have been doing all the painting and woodwork on our own, and doing a great job at it. But for some reason the carpendar seems to think you must put nails every 3 inches otherwise the woodwork will fall off the house. I mean come on, do you think there is going to be a hurricane in the house, in NEBRASKA? Don’t get me wrong, he does amazing work.

So anyways, I come in yesterday and ask what needs to be done, filling nail holes. Oh JOY! There is 50 bazillion nail holes to be filled. What am I to use? Wood filler is time consuming and just doesn’t do a great job, we are going to use wood putty. GREAT, one step, not a problem. Opening up the little jar…..it’s brown and it feels like snot. It looks like buggers, but this is what we are going to use. Shrek may have well just blew his nose in that jar. Oh great. Fantastic. Thanks a f-ing lot Jerry, for putting 50 billion nail holes that I have to fill with ogre snot. So much fun.

So filling hole I go, and as I walk in the bed room. WHAT THE HELL IS THAT! I look down and here neatly on a empty cement bag is what looks like the biggest dump from a cement elephant. Oh thanks Bruce the tile guy, for leaving this sweet little present. At least it doesn’t smell, and the dogs won’t want to roll around in it, like dog are certain to do if given a chance. What is this a friggin fantasy animal kingdom here, ogres and elephants??

Still puzzles by this all, scratching my head, I go down stairs. Admiring the work. It all happened so fast, but in slow motion. Oh what pretty balasters, taking a sips of my brand new soda.  ooooooooooooooooooooooooooo hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, fffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu ccccccccccccccccccccccccc kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk, a blur of motion, grab rail, shit what if its not secured yet? Grab iron balasters, miss, grab the railing miss, grab the balaster, miss, shiiiiiiiiiittttttt, this is really going to hurt, oh but the balasters really looks awesome, grab again, miss, grab at the air, miss, crap, don’t spill the Diet Pepsi. Finially grab rail, sweet wood, oh I love you!! Ouch, I think I am hurt. Ow, ow, ow, damn stair. Hate you! You grabbed my ankle! Grrrrrrr…….

At least I didn’t spill my soda.
